The UN Development Program published on 17 December 2015 a major report titled "If Africa Builds Nests, Will the Birds Come? Comparative Study on Special Economic Zones (SEZs) in Africa and China."
The study seeks to answer three questions: How have Africa and China performed so far with SEZs? How could Africa benefit from China's experience with SEZs? How could China-Africa cooperation on SEZs be enhanced in the future. The report considers SEZs in Ethiopia, Nigeria, Zambia, Shenzhen, and Suzhou.
The report is also available in Chinese.
